Just think over – nearly 78 million of adult people and over 13 million of children in the USA are involved in this disease. Yes, you are not mistaken. It is a real disease! It is not such a case, when your reflection in the mirror doesn’t make you happy. It is not the situation when your favorite jeans are not up to size for you. It is the case, when obesity makes a great danger to health.
We all understand that this problem concerns almost everyone. Because of it a lot of people suffer from different diseases, beginning from high-blood pressure, heart attacks, problems concerning locomotor apparatus, respiratory system and continuing with the social problems – a person, whose weight is considered to be abnormal, has nervous disorders and problems. That’s why we all together have to struggle with this epidemic. Of course, the governmental politics has to make important emphasis on the solution of this problem. Nevertheless, every one of us can do several easy steps to overcome obesity.
First step is to go to the gym. Yes. No result will come without training in gyms. Of course, you have to consult a doctor beforehand. Second, you can consult with a personal well-qualified trainer. This specialist should surely know how and what you must do not to make harm to your health. Different types of physical activities in the specific period of time will make you even breathe easier. You will forget what shortness of breath is. You will understand how much you can and how great results you can achieve.
Of course, firstly, it hurts and it makes you feel uncomfortable. But in some time you will not imagine your life without training. If you are short of money, you can make some physical activities at home. You can make so-called “home-gym”. There are many video-courses which can teach you how to struggle with this disease. The main point is to set a goal and go to your goal every day. Be sure that nothing is impossible. The only thing you need is to work, to work hard sometimes, to cope with pain, in order to make yourself healthy and happy.
The next step is important too. It is to control what and how to eat. Not a diet, I can say. Most of the diets bring only a brief result. They can spoil your health instead of to help it. And we want to get a positive result for our mind and body for a long time. Remember, we are what we eat. There must be a strict system of what, when and how you eat. You may have a food diary.
You can write down there your meals, any of them during the whole day. Nowadays, we have many such applications on our phones and other gadgets, which can count the calories we have eaten and used, give good pieces of advice what products are more preferable for eating and the time for meals, and so on. Besides it, pay attention on eating organic food. It is really important. It becomes more and more popular. There are many benefits of eating organic. First of all, the organic products are pesticides free. So you can escape from harmful chemicals.
And your body won’t suffer from terrible diseases, which can lead even to death. Such products are fresher. That means that they have better taste and bring more use to the health. They are GMO-free. The harm or use of genetically modified products is still not properly known. But surely they are greater allergens; they increase the risk of some diseases, for example cancer and so on. The organic products are mainly local. It means that you have not to pay great sum of money for those products that are brought from far away. That is very simple.
It is better to buy every product in its season. It will be cheaper and fresher. That’s why it will bring benefits not only to your health, but to your budget. There is a great variety of such products on the shops’ shelves. You can choose some grocery or farmer market that will have the best prices. The organic products usually have the USDA Organic label or Non-GMO labels. But be aware of what you buy. The junk food may also be made of organic products. It is usually a marketing way. So read the labels carefully, in order to buy the best food, which will bring the positive impact to you and your health.
The third step is to change your lifestyle. Try to be more socialized. Try to spend your free time actively. There is so great variety of what to do, instead of just sitting near your computer or laying on the sofa, watching TV. The soap operas won’t make you happier than watching a sunrise or a sunset while jogging. Change your daily timetable. There is a simple thing, which will influence on your mood and health. It is a daily walking.
Only 30 minutes a day will increase your cardiovascular fitness, reduce extra body fat, strengthen your bones and boost muscle power and endurance. It is a cheap way to improve not only your health, but your mood. You can think over all your deals, plan your whole day, look around and see how colorful the world is. A fresh air, a comfortable park, a singing of birds can help you to forget about depressions. Besides it, you can spend time with your family in such a way. Try to involve your friends to it and it will bring you a great joy walking together. You will see soon how greatly your life has changed.
Of course, it is difficult to start a new life. First thing what you have to do is to realize that obesity is a problem. Nevertheless, you are not alone in it. Moreover, you have to fight. And if everybody makes several not complicated steps, we can win. After that, the term “obesity epidemic” will disappear from our life forever.
